Irish people and Irish way of life.

Hello! This year, I went to Dublin with the high school, and I´m going to talk about Irish people and Irish way of life.
In general, Irish people were very simpatic. 
The bus drivers, in general, behaved very good with us because everyday they told us when we must get off the bus.
People in Dublin  have white skin, light eyes and light hair also, usually blond.

They wake up very early. 
They have been known to a large breakfast with fried eggs, bacon ... but in my case, it was not. I took a hearty breakfast but not so large. I used a cup of breakfast cereal with milk and orange juice.
Their mean meal is about seven in the afternoon,  and they eat starter, main course and dessert.
A typical meal of Dublin is fish and chips, they love it so much!

Costums and Fashion (60's)

Hi, I'm going to tell you about Fashion And Costums of 60's.

As in all times fashion was the overlap of the styles of several years and everyone immediately took the mini, or even shorter above the knee. In the figure, many women change into the style of underwear they wore. In the mid 60's the fashion for three quarters sleeve was replaced by the short and long sleeve. The new image gave way to lines and solid colors bold moved from psychedelic with a touch of warmth.

The Woodstock Festival

I´ll talk about  the Woodstock Festival, also called 3 days of peace and music. It was held in a farm near New York in 1969. The festival was called Woodstock (and still is called this way today) cuz at the beggining the organizers expected to held the festival in a little town called Woodstock, but the locals opposed, so Sam Yasgur convinced his dad to let the festival held in the family plot (600 acres).
It lasted 3 days long and many celebrities permormed in the festival, celebrities like Jimmy Hendrix (Jimmy died because of an overdose after his performing)
The organizers expected about just 60 000 coming atthe festival , but there was over 400 000
Years after the festival Michel Wadleigh released a documentary about the festival, and in 2009 Ang Lee released a film about the organization of the festival.
